Who Accepts Survival Med Certifications?

Survival Med's Wilderness First Aid and Wilderness First Responder certifications and Wilderness First Responder recertifications are accepted by most federal and state agencies, employers, non-profits and other organizations.

We're happy to check our records if you're wondering whether a specific organization accepts our online, hybrid or in-person certifications. It's also a good idea to check with your organization.

If your organization requires a live component, our WFA and WFR courses offer a live Zoom option led by a licensed U.S. medical provider.

If your organization requires an in-person component, we offer hybrid WFA and WFR courses in selected locations that include 4-8 hours of in-person instruction.
